Carol then addressed why pets are so essential in people’s lives.
She continued: “I think pets are very important in our lives, they just give you comfort and just stroking your pet, if you can, it’s so relaxing and it’s very calming in the same way that watching fish in an aquarium swimming around is very calming.
“There’s a reason they’re in dental surgeries isn’t there? But I wouldn’t be without Donald for all the tea in China, Billy.”
